Security and Integrated Flood Network System
Under the Smart Community initiative, MCMC has developed a few key projects to foster challenges in fulfilling the objectives of Smart Nation which includes access to digital technologies. One of the projects is called Security and Integrated Flood Network (SAIFON). SAIFON consists of the basic IOT components which is Hardware, Network and Data Analytics to bring solution to the communities in creating a better way of life through the use of ICT. This is also in line with one of the objectives of Smart Community. The system is fully developed by Malaysians and currently being used at Kota Belud Smart Community. SAIFON is designed to forewarn the communities in Kota Belud on the possibility of flood to ensure actions could be taken to reduce the adverse effect due to flood. In addition, the authorities are also able to provide safety measures and preparedness in assisting the communities where the properties and assets may be damaged. The authorities are able to manage traffic flow for the public commuting in and out of Kota Belud district during pre-flood and post-flood. SAIFON also contributes towards achieving SDG Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Climate Action and Partnerships for the Goals.
